Radiator apron fit

I am 'upgrading' a '26 Roadster Pickup that I didn't restore. After difficulty with the fit of the hand crank and a repro apron, I got a nice apron on eBay. This one has the hole for the screw into the engine mount and the extension where the crank and spring goes. It didn't line up. The new reprodu...

Re: Ruckstell sliding clutch gear question

Thank you Norman. I had been turning the u-joint while putting pressure on the slider and nothing happened. I turned the u-joint a tiny bit, reached down and pushed the slider and it went right in. The shifter fits perfectly and now it's all ready to paint. Thanks again! Dave

Ruckstell sliding clutch gear question

I assembled a Ruckstell about a year ago. I "thought" that the sliding clutch gear (P146) slid all of the way through the gears. I left the shifter hole open as I needed a new shifter to replace one with a crack. Now I find that the sliding gear will not go far enough in to fit the new shifter. Is t...

Re: Buckeye Jack

Thanks Charles . Yours is the same but with all those words on the reverse. Since the silver jacks were made in Alliance, they must have been used on fords in the early teens.

Re: Buckeye Jack

I've never seen a date attributed to the block-lettered early Ford jacks. Charles Little's detective work has dated the jack with FORD DETROIT in block letters as 1910 vintage. My FORD DETROIT jack is lettered "Buckeye Alliance Ohio". My question is - what year is the "other" black lettered FORD jac...

Re: WANTED, Rear Spring Shackle '17-'23

I have 2. One is similar to the first photo with square ends. It also has threads for an oiler. The other is like the set depicted on E-Bay. I will send you either or I can bring to Hershey with your name on it.

Re: Help ID aluminum high compression head

The head is identical to the one that was on our Coupelet that is now in the Piquette Museum. It was driven many miles with excellent results. It is a Jensen head, made by Rod Jensen in Chicopee Falls, Mass. It was advertised in the Vintage Ford magazine in the 60's.
